Disney has announced that a new nature-inspired mixed-use resort will come to the shoreline of Bay Lake situated between Wilderness Lodge Resort and Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground in 2022.
The new deluxe resort will feature over 900 rooms that will include a variety of accommodation types and Disney Vacation Club villas.
The resort, which doesn’t have a formal name yet, will be the 16th resort that will have accommodations for Disney Vacation Club members.
Terri Schultz, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club, said:
“This resort experience will be a celebration of Walt Disney’s lifelong love and respect for nature, with some fun and even surprising accommodation types that families will find irresistible.”
This new resort will sit on/near the old River Country water park that was closed in 2001. The location, which is in close proximity to the Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, will be nature-themed, but it’s unclear what that specifically means at this time.
While a name hasn’t been announced, surveys have been circulating with potential names for the new resort.
